Pathway Protection Center for Children

Our Program

The Pathway Protection Center for Children is a 20-bed facility offering emergency placement 24/7, including weekends and holidays, to children ages 6 and older who are in need of a short-term, temporary safe placement until permanent placement can be found.

Skilled staff at the PathwayProtection Center for Children provide care, structure and supervision for youth who have been removed from their homes and placed in Police Protective Custody or in foster care through the Department of Children and Families.

Our facility offers a dorm-like setting with one and two person bedrooms, transportation to and from local schools, a cafeteria, washroom, courtyard with a basketball court, and a playground.
